The Court Division includes four full-time deputy sheriffs and several part-time deputies. They have the responsibility of providing security and maintaining order in the county court system. Heavy case load and multiple, simultaneous sessions make security in our courts a difficult task that is always changing. Deputies utilize both hand-held and stationary metal detectors to promote safety within the courts. Each year, the court security deputies seize hundreds of dangerous items from people such as knives, drugs, and other contraband.
